Baby Blessing Quilt Top

Well the top is finished now I need to go get the batting and get it put together so I can get it quilted, I don't think I will do the quilting myself will take and have it done. I'm pleased with the way it turned out and I know she will love it so that's what counts. Hope all of you have a great evening!

Baby Blessings Quilt

These are the blocks I made to make a baby quilt for my niece who is expecting a baby girl in May. They are from the 'Baby Blessing BOM" from The center block is all hand embroidered I just picked out a few of the words I wanted to put in it, love hand embroidery but seems it takes me forever to do, then each has a 2" colored strip followed by another 2" white strip it's a 9 1/2" block not sure how I'm going to arrange them but, will show quilt when completed. Hope everyone is staying warm it's sure cold here tonight

Two Hour Tulip Purse

I know I haven't posted anything in awhile just couldn't get myself movin but, finally yesterday I made this purse it's called "The Two Hour Tulip Purse" by Janice Pope The fabric is "PURE" by Sweetwater  for Moda. I have the charm pack and the jellyroll and just a yard of the main fabric love, love this fabric so fresh & clean looking reminds me of being at the beach. Well I have to admit it did take me longer than 2 hrs. but, I was doing other things also in between. I made the handles over the shoulder length and covered a button to match. Today I'm going to start a baby blanket for my niece who's expecting a little girl in May and I'm sure it will take me that long to finish I'm not quick like alot of you experienced quilters out there. We're expecting the snow storm hat some of you have already gotten so will be a good day to stay in and sew, stay warm and I'll keep you updated on progress of blanket
